Synopsis

Amazon.com
Gifted with an airy tenor that recalls no less than David Gates, Harry Nilsson, and Paul McCartney on one hand and Matthew Sweet and Squeeze's Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook on the other, David Mead has concocted a sophomore album that's the quintessence of deceptively breezy pop. New York-born and Nashville-wizened Mead again pays homage to economical songwriting and displays a host of artistic influences that span Tin Pan Alley, Lennon & McCartney, '70s folk pop, and post-new-wave sensibilities. Crucially, he shows allegiance to none of them, finding a refreshing liberation in the form, aided in the quest here by the subtle, haunting production of Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger. And if Mead's mostly sunny lyrical concerns could stand a dash of Big Apple tartness, it'll be hard for any pop true believer not to be charmed by the buoyant baker's dozen songs here, from the XTC-isms of "Girl on the Roof" and the title track to the early Elton John echoes of "Figure of Eight," and the spare, bittersweet melodicism of "What I Want to Do" and "Only in the Movies." --Jerry McCulley

CAUGHT HIM LIVE & BOUGHT BOTH CD's on the SPOT
THE JESTER | BALTIMORE, MD United States | 08/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had the fortune of catching David live last nite as the opening act for JOE JACKSON!!!! I was not the least bit disappointed. He could have done another hour on his own. Immediately after Joe's set ended I rushed to the front of the club & purchased "BOTH" David's CD's. Spent the nite listening to them as a wind down from the frenzy of a spectacular event. If you get a chance to see this guy------GO !!!!!!!!!!"
